Wie auf ihrer Facebookseite zu lesen ist, haben sich FOZZY von ihrem Bassisten Sean B. Delson getrennt. Ob diese Situation auch Auswirkung auf seine Tätigkeit bei Stuck Mojo hat, ist bisher noch nicht bekannt. Neuer Mann am Vierseiter ist Paul Di Leo, der auch zusammen mit Gitarrist Rich Ward bei Adrenaline Mob spielt. Das Statement zur Situation lest ihr im Folgenden:
“After 8 years of touring and three records, bassist Sean Delson has left FOZZY by mutual decision. “Ever since the success of Chasing The Grail and the subsequent world tours that followed, it became apparent that Sean’s mindset and goals for FOZZY were different from ours”, says frontman Chris Jericho. “So we decided it would be best to make a change now rather than later and he agreed. But we love Sean as a brother and a player and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
Effective immediately, FOZZY is proud to announce the addition of PAUL DI LEO as their new four-stringer. Paul is a seasoned veteran who’s played with such legendary performers as Billy Joel and Joe Lynn Turner and currently plays with Rich Ward in Adrenaline Mob.
“Paul Di Leo is a greasy groovin, power pocket, monster tone producing, master showman of the highest calibre,” says Rich.
“Together onstage over the last few months we have become the Wonder Twins of metal and I know he’s gonna blow our fan’s minds!!”
Chris continues, “I’m excited and honored to have such a talented player and performer like Paul in FOZZY! I’m convinced he’s a big piece of the puzzle who’s going to help us continue to rise to the next level worldwide.”
Di Leo will join FOZZY at the end of September for their stint headlining the second stage of UPROAR in Calgary, Edmonton and Seattle and on their THE MADNESS RETURNS tour of the Europe and the UK in November.”
